Steve Diet Goedde
Steve Diet Goedde (born 1965) is an American fetish photographer. He was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri and learned the basics of darkroom work and photography from his father, who was an amateur photographer. By the age of 13, Steve was obsessed with taking photographs and started educating himself about photographers that inspired him, most notably Richard Avedon, Lillian Bassman, and Diane Arbus.
He moved to Chicago in 1985 to attend the School of the Art Institute of Chicago where he studied filmmaking and painting. He refused to study photography stating that he had already acquired his aesthetic and visual style.
In 1998, photography publisher Edition Stemmle published a collection of Steve's Chicago work entitled "The Beauty of Fetish" detailing his fascination with such fetishistic fashion elements as latex, leather, and PVC. Later that same year, he moved to Los Angeles where he started a series of photographs which would later become "The Beauty of Fetish: Volume II" (2001), also from Edition Stemmle.
Slish Pix in 2005 released a career retrospective of his work on DVD entitled "Living Through Steve Diet Goedde". In addition to the numerous animated photo galleries, the DVD featured interviews, commentary, and behind the scenes footage.
